I saw your card on the CPS blog today and I just love it. I think I might be stalking your blog lately. :) Hope you don't mind. I just love all your creations.


Ohh what a gorgeous card, with the sweet, sweet picture. Love the butterflies!! LOVE IT!!


Both creations are very lovely. I'm a huge Creative Café fan, love that happy stuff. It's a shame a lot of the things aren't available in the Netherlands.

These are wonderful!! I especially love the blanket-stitched posie :)!


I love it! This card is like a paper hug! I love everything about it!

You were the Runner Up Card of the Week at Card of the You can see the original post here: .

I did use a picture from your post, with links back to the site and the original post. I hope that is OK. Please feel free to email me if you need me to change anything.

I also have an “I was featured” on badge for you if you want it :D


What I meant by you can see the original post here was actually here!

Sorry - I had html in there and it got stripped out :P


Both of these cards are amazing! I love them for different reasons. The first one for the color, shape and texture. The second also for the dimension and sweetness. How did you cut the butterfly shape from the felt? It looks great! :)

The cuteness is never done in your house Melissa, is it???? I agree, the baby days fly by at super speed!


i *heart* your blog and left an award for you on my blog. i'm sure you've received the award, but you are a regular visit and i shared that with my readers. have a wonderful weekend!!

hugs & love!


How wonderful that God's beautiful creations of nature bring so much joy!I love to sit out at our property and just listen to the birds, the wind thru the trees, something scampering off in the woods! I am betting you will have lots of fruit trees at the new house! I have blueberries, raspberries and grapes, all waiting in their pots, just have to find the perfect spot to plant them next spring! Love your new cards and always love seeing your precious little girl!
Have a great weekend!



Once again, your cards are simply stunning!! I love all the depth on the "Love Ya" card, and the adorable flower!! Have a wonderful Labor Day!! Char


Hi Sweet Girl! As numerous people have before me, I too gave you an award on my blog! :) Your site is just too cute! :) Elizabeth


Gidday Melissa, I just love to read how you describe things. You certainly got my attention when you mentioned apples. I adore apples - not so much to eat, I like to look at them and i have a little collection of them in my country kitchen.

Luv, luv, luv your card. Its adorable and looks good enough to eat.

Keep on inspiring.!!!!!!!

Luv Sandie

Well, you've done it again. You've managed to outdo yourself again. I just love coming to your blog every day to see how you can inspire me. I can't believe you actually made that felt flower--wow! You always put so much into your cards. Your take on this week's CPS sketch is amazing as well. Who would have ever thought of turning a sketch into a round card; amazing! I hope my creative cafe has butterflies too. After all of this, I didn't actually tell you how much I love these cards, did I--LOL.


As always, perfection! :)
